It's probably not blending well cause you have to use your brush to blot down the edges of your matting and extend the resin beyond the edges of the matting as well. If you do that and use a roller/ brush it should be ok. As far as thinning the lines, it's hard to tell how much is glass and how much is filler. If you think it's too thin you can always take the filler off and add some strips of differing lengths to feather it out nice. You can shape it with an aggressive da with 40 grit, a die grinder carefully, and or mud hog with 40. I should be putting up a video of my coworker spanking out a Vette pretty soon on some fiberglass repairs.
